The Ultimate Gameday Experience

The Ultimate Gameday Experience

Now offering groups of up to 20 people a chance to party, escape the office, and experience Volunteer game day like you have never seen before. Knoxville Cycle Boat is the city’s newest way to explore the picturesque waterfront along the Tennessee River. 

Lets not forget about game day though! This BYOB experience on the river is similar to the group cycle vehicles found in some cities. Each participant has a set of pedals which, together, propel the boat. (There is also a motor to keep the party cutting through the waves). Participants sit around a communal table, enjoying food and beverage on the river, while listening to tunes via the bluetooth sound system. The Cycleboats are also equipped with televisions so cruising these boats on Vol’s game day’s is a great way to get out on the water and experience Neyland stadium like you never have before. Whether you are an alumni or a current student, finding new ways to have a few drinks with your college friends on Volunteer game day always has had a special place in your heart, and Knoxville Cycle Boats is here to help with the memories to come. 


Knoxville Cycleboats’ 17-passenger vessel is equipped with individual pedal stations and a motor assist for smooth sailing, providing a fun and unique outdoor setting for nautical group outings and celebrations on the water. Cruises are captained by a licensed professional and include a deckhand on board for assistance with your cruise along with U.S. Coast Guard-required safety gear. Guests are encouraged to bring their own food and beverages to enjoy while cruising the river to a soundtrack of their choice courtesy of the boat’s user-friendly Bluetooth sound system.


 To get in the spirit and celebrate University of Tennessee game days, Knoxville Cycleboats will offer extended 120-minute cruises and adjusted hours before, during and after Tennessee Volunteers football game festivities. These Cycleboats also include a custom onboard TV display, allowing guests to watch the team take the gridiron while enjoying the energy of cruising on the water right outside the stadium.

There is no age limit to board, but you do have to be at least 21 years old to consume alcohol. It’s a cruise that stretches a few miles down the river, complete with a floating view of Big Orange Country. The boat passes right by Neyland Stadium and Thompson-Boling Arena.
